Is Elliott Rollins (aka Archer Dunhill) Alive on Pretty Little Liars?
The last time we see the evil Archer Dunhill on Pretty Little Liars, we still know him as Dr. Elliot Rollins, and he's very likely dead. After being struck by Lucas Gottesman's car, his head and body have crashed through a windshield and his eyes stare straight into Hanna Marin's. As is their nature, the girls try to cover it up; they bury him and try to get rid of any evidence associated with the murder. But now, it looks like that body might not be in that grave after all!
In the most recent episode, the Rosewood Police find a lot of new things when investigating Archer, the man who impersonates the long-dead Dr. Elliot Rollins. Toby reveals to Emily and Aria that his card has been used in Baltimore to get a car. Considering the girls were trying to lay a trail to Philadelphia in an attempt to throw the police off their scent, this could be very bad indeed. And that's not the worst of it.
In the trailer for the next episode, we hear a British man — presumably Archer — talking to Hanna over the phone. "Next time you bury someone," the voice sneers, "make sure they're dead!" Of course, there are a lot of players in the game, and it's not hard to fake a British accent. Could this be a new sinister figure, perhaps the mysterious "A.D.", or another member of the team? Or, even worse, is Archer Dunhill somehow, by some cosmic misfortune, still alive? In order to get a concrete answer, it seems the girls decide to go back and dig up the grave.
It looks like it's very possible that Archer is still alive, despite being hit head-on with a car. You have to admit, when it comes to this show, sometimes you just have to suspend reality a bit. Maybe he wasn't totally dead and he just crawled out of his shallow grave, Alison DiLaurentis style. Or maybe it's not Archer in that grave at all, but someone wearing a very confusing Archer mask.
If Archer is, indeed, still alive, it also looks like he won't just be leaving to start a new life. We've learned some more about him since his alleged death. Aria and Emily found his secret apartment, where he stashed passports, pictures of Wilden, and a mannequin head. We also know that he knew Alison didn't kill Charlotte DiLaurentis. But there are still so many questions left.
Is Archer going to come back for revenge? Are Jenna Marshall, Noel Kahn, and Sara Harvey somehow helping him? What will Mary Drake do if she finds out her evil accomplice is still alive? If Archer had known Alison didn't kill Charlotte, then what was he planning to do the night he took her out of Welby? Sadly we have to wait two whole weeks to find out these answers, but it's only a matter of time before the truth comes out!
